An awesome match



The man of the day, Maxi Rodriguez, with one of the most awesome scores that one is given to see in football! Of course mere pictures cannot render such an extraordinary kick, but Rodriguez finally placed Argentina in quarters after a stunning game. (added later: you can find the video of the Maxi Score, click here, look for "video highlights" (yellow and black rectangle somewhere in the middle, click again and look for the Argentina versus Mexico, match 50, in the menu of the window that opens. Then wait until 98 appears in the screen, about 1.8 minutes into the clip)

This is the kind of game that separates great teams from average: both Argentina and Mexico showed depth, strength, creativity, resistence until the last 120ieth minute. Mexico in probably its best performance ever! Anyone deserved to win. But Argentina most, and Argentina needed a difficult match to help focus against Germany. The shame of 2002 is washed and bleached :)

Ps: as Quico mentioned in a comment, this is the kind of match that we will remember twenty years from today.

My oh my... Maxi's strike was indeed a thing of beauty. Hats off to the Mexicans, who played their hearts out. It's a shame one of these two teams had to lose the match.

Daniel,

I was looking for it...not up yet. (Can't take long before someone uploads it.)

I kinda think Mexico would have had to WIN to actually qualify this one as a classic. Argentina beating Mexico is kind of dog-bites-man...

I want a giant killing, DAMN IT! This must be the World Cup that has gone the longest without a serious upset. What's up with that!? Ecuador, or Ghana...damn it, DO SOMETHING!...
